About Us: Our History

Doctors in labcoatsHistory
The Arthritis Center of Nebraska provides treatment programs specifically designed to meet the needs of the patient with arthritis. Since more than 100 diseases cause significant arthritis, the diagnosis and management of rheumatic diseases encompasses many conditions.

Our innovative and aggressive approach to treatment, and our active participation in clinical research of new therapies, have made the Arthritis Center of Nebraska a center of excellence in the field of rheumatology. Our physicians and facilities truly set us apart. 

Dr. Melvin Churchill, Dr. Alan Jacobs, Dr. Rick Chatwell and Dr. Robert Valente comprise a core group of physicians with expertise gained from medical schools across America. The extensive rheumatology training for all of our physicians was completed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Our state-of-the-art facility offers exceptional diagnostic and treatment services. We are equipped for in-house bone density measurements, radiographs, ultrasound, laboratory testing, and more.

We are currently accepting new patients, and work with Medicare and a wide range of health insurance companies. Call for an appointment, or ask your physician for a referral.
